No more LBD! How to dress POCO By Pippa jeans for the party season

Move over the LBD; stand aside the festive frock – because party jeans are having their moment in the spotlight this Christmas. And we are totally on board.

Each December, we spend ages trawling the shops and online in search of the perfect party dress, and we are always spoiled for choice with an array of shiny, shimmering sequinned numbers.

But what about those of us who aren't feeling the frock phenomenon? We want a stylish alternative that's as glamorous as the party dress and inspires just as much confidence – so, this year, we're building our Christmas wardrobe around our favourite jeans.

We have collaborated with POCO by Pippa O'Connor and River Island to bring you a selection of alternative party looks, and each one is to die for.

The statement sweater

Heading for a few casual drinks with an old friend, and struggling with the smart-casual dress code? Style-dilemma solved! Simply team your party jeans with a trophy sweater, and you're prepared for any and every situation. This look is comfy and cosy, but it still oozes festive cheer and class.

The metallic top

If you only invest in one top this festive season, we'd make a serious case for a metallic number. This gold cold-shouldered piece just screams 'Christmas', and when paired with a great pair of jeans like these POCOs, it will take you anywhere.

The trophy jacket

Embroidery and brocade are adding a quirky twist to festive style this season, and the best way to parade a piece like this is to team it with your favourite denims. This cami-and-jeans pairing is sleek, chic and understated – allowing that epic jacket to do all of the talking.

The 'Audrey' look 

Just because everyone around you is donning unicorn sequins for the party season, doesn't mean you can't still stun in an amazing all-black ensemble. Set the tone of cool sophistication with your party jeans, and rock Audrey Hepburn vibes by layering with a simple black top and blazer. Embellishments like these pearls will really make the outfit pop.
